Climate Action Business Association (CABA) addresses the climate crisis by organizing local business leaders to be more effective advocates on climate change. To do this, CABA works with our member businesses to increase their sustainability initiatives, become more effective policy advocates, and build a stronger community.
The Communications Fellow is responsible for managing social media and assisting with traditional media functions and website maintenance for CABA and our partner organization, Climate XChange. Management of social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram, should be data-driven in order to strategically build an audience.
